We also pour a blimmin' great pint of locally brewed real ale and equally tasty Belgian beer.

nice food, service a little bit off

went in on sunday specifically for a roast and we were delighted with the meals we got, they were generous and flavourful, I would particularly recommend the cheese cauliflower side. However when we asked for a specific wine to go with our lunch (which we knew was on their wine list) we were told... read more

Sadly, for such a lovely location, the recent refurbishment has apparently been accompanied by some changes that are far from an improvement. For one thing, the portion sizes relative to prices are laughable. What was offered as a burger (for £14 no less!) was probably about 3 oz of beef. And the child's burger (around £6 I think) was literally... More

After hearing good review we booked a table for 5 expecting a nice meal. It was very busy but we expected that on a Saturday night in London. There was a band playing which weren't very good and so loud it was difficult to hold a conversation during the meal. First pint served was full of sediment and tasted 'off'... More

I have been to The Sun Inn a couple of times for Sunday lunch and remember it was superb. Returned again this Sunday and had a tasty Sunday Roast (in our Party this included Beef, Roast Chicken and Vegetarian). All in all a good value tasty Sunday dinner with no complaints. It's busy but this is great drinking pub in... More

Have been a regular of The Sun for 15 years, and watched with dismay as food standard has continuously declined. Had Sunday lunch yesterday. It was awful. Slow service (45 minutes between ordering and food arriving); side dishes forgotten; a strater arrived after main courses; the childrens food was cold; the Yorkshire was a an extruded lump of over-cooked cold...

Ive frequented this pub since 1997 when we moved to Barnes. The food used to be great but has gone down dreadfully over the years. The fried chicken last Sunday was miserably small and over cooked, almost charred. Tonights Burger has to be the smallest burger patty Ive ever been served. 18 years later I have to say Im not...

Great food, with some excellent deals (2 courses for £10). Very busy at weekends so be sure to book. Recently renovated to a high standard with welcoming staff offering a good service.

Sorry to be negative but there is nothing to recommend here. We ordered the humous starter and salmon fishcakes with "potato wedges." Most of the food was barely edible but we were hungry and short of time so we had prepaid and left without saying much. They are closing for refurbishment so perhaps things will improve in the future.

This is a beautiful old pub, with authentic and comfortable decor and furniture. It faces barnes green and pond, and has seating inside and outside, at the front and back. The food has varied over the years, but the place has such a great location and vibe you just have to go there.
